The 7th Jain Foundation Scientific Conference was held November 4-7, 2015 in Toronto, Canada.

President's Letter to Attendees of the 2015 Dysferlin Conference

Scientific conferences are important because they promote the sharing of scientific ideas and give researchers the opportunity to meet and form collaborations with other scientists. Many conferences are held every year on neuromuscular diseases and the Jain Foundation frequently sends representatives to these to learn more about exciting discoveries in the field. Click here for a list of upcoming conferences relevant to dysferlinopathy and to see whether anyone from the Jain Foundation will be attending. Please email to suggest conferences to add to this page.

Because dysferlinopathy is such a rare disease, most conferences do not have many presentations on the disease. Consequently, the Jain Foundation also hosts a conference specifically focused on dysferlin. For more information about dysferlin-specific conferences hosted by the Jain Foundation, click here.
